Ashley Hannigan is an Epidemiology Specialist for the Injury Surveillance Program (ISP) within the Alaska Division of Public Health (DPH) where she functions as the Program Coordinator for the Alaska Violent Death Reporting System (AKVDRS) and the State Unintentional Drug Overdose Reporting System (SUDORS). The Injury Surveillance Program ensures that timely and accurate injury data are available for analysis and dissemination. Through her work with the Alaska DPH, Ashley collects data on violent deaths and unintentional overdoses in Alaska and works with her Program Manager to collaborate with partners in Injury Prevention to develop data-driven prevention efforts with the intent to decrease morbidity and mortality related to violence and addiction in Alaska.
The Alaska Division of Public Health’s mission is to protect and promote the health of Alaskans, with a vision of Alaskans enjoying optimum health and safety through achieving greater public, community, and personal responsibility for health conditions and choices. The Injury Surveillance program aims to prevent intentional and unintentional injuries and reduce their consequences by gathering data and identifying trends, patterns, and societal impacts. The ISP works with communities, agencies, and organizations to facilitate this mission, promote awareness, and foster safe behavior. The ISP collects data on violent deaths, fatal overdoses, firearm injuries, occupational fatalities, and drowning fatalities.
